Actually I just had an interesting idea.....I have two speaker stands that are adjustable, not sur ehow high they go but they are black and have a nice base....I;m gonna go find them and see if that idea has any merit.

I was thinking of moving this tank to where the 55g is now after i sell it but I end up with a ceiling BUT I do have a wall then.

I was kinda leaving that spot open too in case I see a nice 90g tank cause that woudl fit in that spot too.

LOL, I am sooo bad, I don't know how my b/f puts up with me. He is always the first to show off all the tanks though when someone comes over LOL

The only tank I wouldnt have would be a aggressive fish only tank but I;m not even sure I would want one. So maybe I can just move the tanks when the 55g sells. That is when I do sell it. I'm finding it hard to part with it, I love it so much. Plus I've been using it as a qt. hehe

The speaker stand sounds like a great idea. I have been thinking about building my own lights and a hood for my tank but wasn't sure how to support it all and still make for easy access. A couple of "Boom" type Microphone stands might be just the ticket.

And thats a cheap one lol. the cheapo ones work ok at best. I only paid 163 for my full size remora which really kills me.....

Might have a line on an aquaticlife one tho, I think they are about $100 new.

Skimming ain't cheap big tank or small tank. lol
